Very quick pace! 22 floors since the beginning of the year. Who says you can't build fast in a dense urban area.

I don't understand this building at all. Is Shenzen in a major earthquake zone? There's hardly any space between the core and the perimeter columns.

well Shenzhen rarely gets huge earth quakes, and it seems there using some type of tube structure. which from reading (Fazlur Khan's book) seems to deal with earthquakes efficiently

There actually is quite a bit of space. It is just that the photos from head on make it look like there is not much space between them.

Even so, those steel columns are huuuge.

After seeing those pictures, I stand by my previous statement. This building looks to be 80% steel and core. Those offices will be horribly cramped.

Nice updates. Im not too sure why they would want to build the new supertall near an existing one though. It might cover the old super tall.

Remember how big the Orange beams were? The area between the edge and the core is larger than it looks. U can see the workers and compare the size.

Stilll, the core does seem oversized. They'll prolly have some offices in the core.

And the massive beams are filled with reinforced concrete! This building is designed to resist to a nuclear attack or what?

On Tom_Green's pictures you can see the rebar inside and on top of the beams, there's also a concrete pump.

The issue of the beams has been explained a few times along the thread already, and even so some forumers are derailing the thread raising this question once and again, and again. This is soft-trolling.

I will delete any new post going round and round over that thing since it has been clarified for several times already.
